How to Make Your Home Cozy this Winter Photo

Winter is the perfect time to incorporate some cozy interior design ideas for the whole house. Not only are you likely spending more time at home, but the days are shorter, and the weather is colder, which means you want your home to be as warm and welcoming as possible. Here’s how to make your home cozy this winter.

Go Wild with Winter Rugs

While area rugs look great year-round, there’s something special about a beautiful rug during the wintertime. Not only do area rugs keep your bare feet from coming into contact with cold hardwood and tile floors, they also add coziness, warmth, and texture to the room’s décor. The best part? Rugs can be used in every room in the house, whether you’re looking for cozy family room ideas, cozy bedroom ideas, or anything in between. Not sure which size rug you need? Here’s how to choose the right rug size for your space!

Incorporate Table Textiles

If you’re looking for creative ideas for how to make your home cozy this winter, you won’t want to ignore one of our favorite winter decorating ideas: table textiles. While you might already use tablecloths and runners on your dining room table, you don’t have to stop there. Try adding a festive textile to every table in the house, whether it’s your coffee table, side table, console, desk, dresser, or nightstand.

Let There Be Light

Because the days are shorter, winter can sometimes feel dark and gloomy. That’s why adding additional lighting to your home is a great way to make your home feel cozy and cheerful during the winter months. Try adding table and floor lamps, using softer lighting, and adding some candlelight or a string of hanging lights around the perimeter of the room to make your home feel as warm and welcoming as possible.

Swap-In Winter Throw Pillows and Blankets

One of our favorite winter decorating ideas doesn’t just make your home look festive, it also adds to the feeling of coziness you’re looking for in the colder months. Swapping in winter throw pillows and blankets is a great way to make yourself feel cozy and snug, while also creating a look that brings winter cheer. To get started, choose winter colors like blue, silver, gold, and white or winter patterns like plaid or flannel. You’ll feel like you’re living in a holiday movie in no time.
